Things To Do Before I Die
People always say, “That’s on list of things to do before I die,” and there are even books that list places and things they recommend you do before you die.
But how many of us actually keep a real list that we can refer to to see how much we have left to do and to remind ourselves that there is still so much left to live for?
Well, I have decided to start my own list. Once I accomplish each thing, I will add the date I did it. As new ideas come to me, I will add those too. Also, I see no reason why this list has to appear sensible, sane, or rational; so, if I want to put that I’d like to go to the International Space Station for a week as a tourist, I will definitely put that down (even though today, as I write this, there is no foreseeable way that I could afford the multi-million-dollar price tag).
So, without further ado, here’s my list:
|Go hang gliding||What an awesome experience. it's just like what a bird must feel like!|
|Ride in a hot air balloon||For details, see my entry “…what about my life so far…”|
|Ride in a semi||I have to be honest...it was rather anticlimactic|
|Go back to Israel||10 April 2008||Read all about it 16 Years in the Making.|
|Ride a mechanical bull||I did this on Bourbon Street. It was awesome, but my hips were killing me the next day!|
|Drink moonshine||I got Catdaddy first, but it totally tasted like Tequila, so the waiter brought me a shot of Virginia White Lightening. Man, did that taste fantastic.|
